Starting point: Cochabamba, where I spent two days recovering from the flight and seeing the sights.
Cochabamba to Oruro (3709m) was an easy, 4 hour ride (218km), climbing to 4400m from 2558m with a stop for a coke to keep me awake! We were entertained by music and dance in Oruro, performed by young people. The most fascinating thing for me is seeing the ladies in their native dress ...

... because there is nowhere to put anything. AND HER MOM SNEAKS INTO HER ROOM AT NIGHT TO WATCH HER SLEEP. Oh, it doesn't help that Amanda shares a birthday with the dead son, either. And that her brother also just passed away so the mom wants to talk to her about it all the time (which she is understandably uncomfortable with.)
